No charges have been brought against Mr. Gaetz, and the extent of his criminal exposure is unclear.
Mr. Gaetz said in an interview that his lawyers had been in touch with the Justice Department and that they were told he was the subject, not the target, of an investigation. “I only know that it has to do with women,” Mr. Gaetz said. “I have a suspicion that someone is trying to recategorize my generosity to ex-girlfriends as something more untoward.”
Mr. Gaetz called the investigation part of an elaborate scheme involving “false sex allegations” to extort him and his family for $25 million that began this month. He said he and his father, Don Gaetz, had been cooperating with the F.B.I. and “wearing a wire” after they were approached by people saying they could make the investigation “go away.” Mr. Gaetz claimed the disclosure of the sex trafficking inquiry was intended to thwart an investigation into the extortion plot.
In a second interview later Tuesday, the congressman said he had no plans to resign his House seat and denied that he had romantic relationships with minors. “It is verifiably false that I have traveled with a 17-year-old woman,” he said.
Anyone can make an accusation, but as long as there's no proof, the only pudding here is in Biden's head.
Unlike the ten accusers against Mario Cuomo and Bill Clinton showing up multiple times on Epstein Island... this sounds like all sizzle and no steak.
Sounds more like an extortion plot gone bad than anything illicit.
Per the NYT:
There are MANY people/sources more reliable/smarter than you, but none more than the NY TIMES. The GOLD Standard in the WORLD !
Monica Lewinsky was 22. There IS a difference. I believe they call it "legal age".
